Android O will be the last big update for the flagship smartphones OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T launched last year. The company plans to end the open beta program after the roll-out of Android and updates.
Android O will be the last big update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T flagship smartphones. The company has confirmed in their forum that both OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will not receive any major updates after Android O.
OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3, the flagship smartphones announced last year, will meet the fate of the 2015 flagship smartphone OnePlus 2. In an official forum post, Oliver Z, community manager and head of products at OnePlus, wrote, “Android O is the latest Android version update that we will be releasing for OP3 / 3T. We will continue to release security patch updates for the foreseeable future and We will offer support for individual application updates. “
Oliver further confirmed that OnePlus will end the open beta program for OnePlus 3 and 3T after the Android O update rolls out. OnePlus is pushing updates through the beta program to test new features before its general rollout. Following the Android O update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, the company will move the open beta program to the OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users were supposed to receive the OxygenOS 4.5 update with the latest August security patch, but the company delayed the OxygenOS update. Oliver has now confirmed that both handsets will receive a security patch for August without the OxygenOS 4.5 update.
In June, OnePlus confirmed that OnePlus 2 would not receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The company kept many users in the dark before confirming that the 2015 smartphone would not get the latest Android flavor. With the OnePlus 3, 3T now confirming that it hasn’t received any major Android updates since Android O, this should come as a disappointment for users of one of the best rated smartphones.
